Our Mission.

Transform the lives of our participants through culinary arts training, instilling a love of great food and ingredients, in ways that the entire community can participate in, support and celebrate.
Our culinary training program is offered in partnership with Stella's Circle Employment Services. We provide job training and experience to individuals in our community who are trying to find their way back into the workforce.  But we do more than just teach restaurant skills. We also provide the mentorship, life skills, and full circle support that will enable our graduates to find successful and sustainable employment.
The Hungry Heart is a safe learning environment for folks facing barriers to inclusion in their community. Barriers like mental health challenges, addictions, poverty, homelessness, trauma, criminal justice history, low literacy, and unemployment. Real work gives them the skills and confidence to gain economic independence and reach their fullest potential. We like to think of it as giving people a hand up, instead of a hand out.
